Crossword  Cybersecurity  Plc  ("Crossword") the ISDX listed tech transfer  company,  is  to  partner  with
Coventry  University to jointly explore commercial opportunities leveraging research conducted at  Coventry
into target centric network monitoring in cyberspace.

Dr Siraj Ahmed Shaikh, Reader in Cyber Security at Coventry University and his team has conducted extensive
research  in the area of threat attribution and monitoring using advanced Bayesian analytics. The  approach
taken  provides  a  highly effective early warning system when networks are under  threat  and  are  widely
applicable,  particularly  in  detecting and responding rapidly to insider  threats  and  advanced  evasion
techniques.  Crossword is working exclusively with Dr Shaikh's team to develop their  work  into  a  highly
scalable platform to meet today's cyber security challenges.

Tom  Ilube, Crossword's CEO said "Coventry's research is extremely compelling and we believe it will enable
companies to react to time sensitive cyber incidents in a more efficient and cost effective way. Coventry's
applied  research into Bayesian inference allows us to bring this exciting area of analysis into the  cyber
domain"

"We are delighted to be working with Crossword Cybersecurity on this exciting venture. Our research has the
potential  to  significantly  enhance early estimation of threat indicators  for  cyber  defence,  national
security  and  critical  infrastructure protection where defences rely on sensing. Working  with  Crossword
would  mean  effective access to the market with the right product." commented Dr Siraj Shaikh,  Reader  in
Cyber Security at Coventry University.

The Directors accept responsibility for this statement.
